A gift is done



During the summer I put together some runners with some leftover blocks.
I finally got around to finishing this one.
It will be a Christmas gift.
Thanks to Natalie Ross for a wonderful tutorial on these flowers.
I just cannot stop making them.

Oh my goodness!! to think I,ve been sqashing Lily bugs all summer, I didn,t know they were beautiful , I suppose they are really fairies that eat lily leaves and flowers to stay beautiful .I must be more careful next year.
That is a lovely T, runner you have made from cathedral window blocks---cottonreel

Cute runner. I just got around to looking at the "bloom" tutorial and it looks very quick and easy. (To see the FINISHED bloom, it looks much harder than that!!!) I'm sure this runner will be a well-loved gift for someone.

Mam said...

Very nice, very inspiring. I think I'll make one in fall colours.

Love the table topper. I searched out the tutorial for the flower, and I'm going to have to find a place to use some.

Both runners are so cute and what a great way to use up leftover blocks!

Yvette said...

You always have such great ideas!

Very smart to start on your Christmas list. I just had a panic attack this morning when I realized I had better start collecting fabrics for the cottage swap. My month is coming soon.
